At her Mary How Trust health screening, we discovered Julie Bell (not her real name) had a raised level of cholesterol.
We recommended certain changes to her diet and levels of exercise, so that she could avoid further complications and the need for medication.
Julie tell us:
"My GP offered me statins, but I chose instead to make the lifestyle changes you suggested.
By adopting a low fat, healthy diet, walking every day and taking up Zumba dance classes, I've been able to lower my cholesterol.
I feel much better; this was my wake-up call!"
